Hiring Contractor for Kitchen/Bath remodel
September 22, 2013 in Other
What's normal? I've learned contractors often get a 30% discount on materials (cabinets, tile, fixtures, etc) that they may or may NOT pass on to their customer. My contract (not yet signed) provides 'allowances' plus 10% markup on the total job for his 'profit'. 30% off the allowances plus taking off his 10% from that is 1/3 of the total cost of our project. Seems a pretty steep profit (40%) to me. What's up with this????
